Gunfire struck a 10-year-old Indianapolis boy asleep in his bed Monday night in an apparent random shooting that also left a 9-year-old girl with minor injuries, authorities said.

Multiple shots were fired outside the Amber Woods Apartments complex in the 3500 block of Mitthoefer Road just before midnight, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police said.

“It’s a callous act for a person to open fire into an apartment building in the middle of the night,” a police spokesman told reporters at the scene.

Officers responded and found the boy suffering from a gunshot wound and other minor injuries. He was rushed to a hospital, where authorities said he is in stable condition. 

Police said the 9-year-old girl was not shot, but also suffered minor injuries. 

Detectives said preliminary information indicates that both children were in bed at the time of the shooting, and that they were not the intended target.

Police are continuing to investigate the shooting.
